Jose Mourinho: What's wrong at Manchester United?

GETTY Jose Mourinho's Man Utd have made a poor start

On Friday Mourinho, a title victor in Italy, Spain and England, proclaimed that he would be "one of the greatest managers in the world" even if he doesn't win the Premier League title while at United.

Meulensteen says the 55-year-old should put more "energy" in making sure his team are successful on the pitch, rather than worrying about the media.

When it was pointed out that Klopp was not declaring himself one of the world's greatest managers and leaving himself open to such scrutiny, Mourinho launched into a further defence of his CV and cited last season's second-place finish with United as one of his greatest achievements.

"I repeat that two seasons ago we had a fantastic season by winning the Europa League, this season and last everybody thought Atletico Madrid was incredible because they won the Europa League after being knocked out of the Champions League". It's not especially now.

An opening day win over Leicester has been followed by two defeats - first at Brighton, then against Tottenham on their own patch on Monday.

The Red Devils are now six points off the pace in the race for the Premier League title this season after having lost their last two games in the top flight.

"There were times when Sir Alex Ferguson took the pressure off us as players". Last season we had a fantastic start and we won the first three matches.




'Maybe this time we start with two defeats and who knows if we will have a good run that gives us consecutive victories and consecutive points'.

In other words, this is nearly the ideal game for United at this point.

Sanchez may return to the starting line-up after training all week following a minor knock.

The United manager is still awaiting the outcome of contract talks between the club and Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea. We're just in August. Speaking to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Metro), the former Real Madrid and Barcelona striker defended the Special One's long-term managerial record, even as Zidane reportedly waits in the wings.

"If it can happen there, and he's won the league, why can't it happen at Man United where he hasn't?"

'They don't hide their investment.
